THE BUY DISTRICT RACES.
Chevalier's Ride on Tar and
Tartar Was the Feature
of the Day.
HE RECEIVED AN OVATION.
Played for a "Good Thing," Mt. Air
Downed Howard In a Nose
The usual ten bookmakers cut in yesterday.
Charley Quinn thought Bobolink had a
chance of finishing in the place and donated a
few dollars to the ring.
Tar and Tartar's win was not a very produc
tive one to his owner, Nick Hall, as Jockey
Hinrlchs, whose horse McFarlane finished sec
ond, bid the winner, entered to be sold for
$100 up to $700, at which figure his owner re
It was hinted in wise circles that Rlnfax had
undergone the canning process, one early bird
having seen a huge tin can, bearing a red lob
ster label, on which was printed the request,
"keep in a dark place," which he is positive
was intended for the old chestnut.
It was stated some days ago that Dan Honig,
the St. Louis horseman, would shortly start for
California with a string of racehorses. Pos
sibly the wise Dan found transportation to
the Golden West a bit too expensive, for he is
still snugly stabled at St. Louis, one of his
horses, Charm, having won a race at St. Louis
Johnny Coleman of the Stuyvesant Club did
not see where Mt. Air figured a chance in the
last event of the day, and after the caller had
made his announcement at the conclusion of
the race, it was with difficulty the penciler
could see the end of the line back of his box.
Johnny forget that some of the horses at the
track have copper on and copper off days.
The horse Dr. Gardner ran away twice
while at the post in the first race and acted so
badly in general that he was set down as a
••hypo." Alter the race Secretary Hooper of
the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, accompanied by a veterinary sur
geon, made an examination of the horse in his
stall, but could find no trace of his having
been injected with any drug tending to stimu
late the animal to undue exertion.
The clever coffee-colored lad from New
Orleans, Chevalier, distinguished nimself
by winning the last three races on the card
off the reel, and was the bright particular
star before which all of the other incidents
and events of the day sank into oblivion.
The form he has been displaying in the
saddle of late certainly surpassed that of
any of the other boys, and for the time
being he is the idol before whose shrine
the public is worshiping. Certainly his
ride on Tar and Tartar was a good exhibi
tion of determination and grit, and he
well-merited the liberal applause that was
bestowed upon him by the crowd at the
conclusion of the exciting finish.
Race-goers turned out in fair numbers,
and the racing as a whole was above the
average, even if some of the runs would
not bear the strictest investigation. Starter
Ferguson was only in fair fettle, some of
the delays at the post being very tiresome.
• Three favorites, a second and one third
choice were successful in drawing down
Eight hard-shell "crabs" kept the crowd
standing on pins ana needles by their an
tics at the post in the opening race, a five
and a half furlong run, Dr. Gardner being
especially active, enlivening matters by
running array twice and getting the bell.
After a de.ay of thirty minutes, they were
Bent away, with the 2to 1 favorite, Red
Idle, in front, and after letting Steadfast
and Tuxedo pass him and run their heads
off, he came on in the stretch and won
easily from Tuxedo, with Steadfast a tired
B. C. Holly's Ali Baba was the touted
good thing in the second race, at the same
distance as the opening event. With C.
Weber up, he was quickly backed from 2"_
to 1 to 8 to 5, and won easily from Dolly M,
one of the second choices, iii 1:03^. Amigo
Lady Jane quit going five and a half
furlongs on Friday last, but yesterday,
starting second choice at 5 to 2 in the third
race, a six and a half furlong run, she led
from start to finish, winning cleverly at
the end a length in front of Road Runner
in 1:21 Sir Richard, the first choice,
backed from 6 to 5 to 4 to 5, was just nosed
out at the wire for the place.
The 2 to 1 chalked up against Tar and
Tartar in the mile-selling race soon melted,
his price at post time being even money.
Commission was the only one considered
likely to give him a race and was quoted at
threes, long odds being laid against the
When the flag fell young Ward on Mc-
Farlane, a 20 to 1 shot, with but eighty
pounds up, skimmed away in front, and
at one time it looked as though his run
away tactics would prove successful.
Turning into' the stretch he had a lead of
fully four lengths, with Miss Buckley sec
and and May Day third, the favorite a bad
last. Instead of going on and tending to
his business Ward could rot resist the
temptation to look back and make a few
monkey erimaces at his field, and before
long Mr. Ward was terrified to seethe
brown head of the favorite on which
Chevalier had been working hard at his
saddle girth. In a close and exciting drive
Chevalier got his mount home a head in
front, and was tumultously cheered on
his return to the stand. Commission
finished an ordinary third.
There were but four starters in the last
race, a short six-furlong dash, with penal
ties and allowances. Rinfax and Char
mion opened equal favorites in the betting
at 6to 5. At post time 9to 5 and 2 to 1
was obtainable against Charmion, and
Rinfax, who receded to 11 to 5 at one stage
of the betting, was held at Bto 5. A strong
tip out on Mt. Air cut - his price from IS to
5 to 3 to 1.
Rinfax went out in front when the flag
fell and led until something over a furlong
from home, when he fell back, and Howard
and Mt. Air fought it out to the wire, the
latter getting there first by a nose in the
fast time of 1:12. Charmion came strong
and beat Rinfax for third money.

Annual Shoot of the Country and
Tamalpais Gun Salmon
The officers of the Pacific . States Lawn
Tennis Association, who will regulate mat
ters connected with the championship
tournament at San Rafael, are: Alec B.
Wilberforce, president; ' A. A. Dewing,
vice-president; A. Starr Keeler, secretary:
Samuel Hardy, Dr. John Spencer, A. J.
Treat and A. E. Kaeser. The winner of
the all-comers' tournament will be called
upon to play Samuel Hardy, the present
champion, for a trophy presented by* the
association, which will become the per
sonal property of any player who wins it
thiee times, but not necessarily in succes
sion. All matches will be played three
out of five sets.
The Country and Tamalpais clubs will
have their annual pigeon-shooting match
on Saturday next, at the Oakland Trotting
Park. When the sportsman of those two
noted clubs meet in yearly competition
the feathers are made* to fly in all direc
tions, and generally speaking the shooting
done by the contestants is good.
Saturday's match will be a race of
twenty-live birds per man, and ' as each
club will be represented by five of its best
field shots, two hundred and fifty birds
will be sprung from the traps. If the day
is good for trap shooting, it is safe
to say that two hundred pigeons will meet
a quick death. The Country Club will be
represented by R. H. Sprague, F. W. Tal
lant, F. R. Webster, E. Donohoe and A. C.
Tubba, with R. B. Woodward and W.
Kittle as substitutes. The Tamalpais Club
will send to the feathered field of war T. R.
Barney, C. M. Osborn, W. C. Brown, F.
Butler Jr. and John Bergez; tbe substi
tute has not yet been named. The con
sideration is a dinner.
Henry Skinner received a telegram from
Mr. Chase of | Santa Cruz yesterday which
states that a great run of quinnat salmon
is now in Santa Cruz Bay, and that anglers
are enjoying excellent sport. Two gentle
men caught sixteen salmon last Sunday
morning, two of which weighed respec
tively forty-three and thirty-eight pounds.
The salmon are taking minnows best, but
to be successful an angler must have his
tackle properly mounted, so that the min
now will spin nicely and make an attrac
tive appearance in the water. Minnows
that have been preserved in rock salt and
will not work off the hook while trolling
are the most killing of lures. The fresh
minnow is undoubtedly an excellent bait,
but it easily separates from the hook and
frequently an angler will troll for quite a
length of time before he makes the aiscov
ery that his hook is minus a bait. The
spoon occasionally does good service, but
the great secret in trolling for salmon is in
knowing the proper depth to sink the
spoon or minnow and having an oarsman
who understands his business and will row
slow or fast, as the occasion demands. The
Italians, who charge a small fortune for
rowing anglers a few hours in the morning,
are a lazy lot of fellows, who will not be
advised by any person, and much good
sport is lost on, their account. The better
ana cheaper way to enjoy salmon-fishing
in the Santa-Cruz and Monterey bays is
for two men to hire a boat and do their
own rowing and fishing. Good, service
able boats can be leased for a couple of
dollars, and the anglers will better enjoy
the sport than in the company of a fisher
man. 7 V77-' '
A second meeting of sportsmen who are
interested in the success of the Inanimate
Target Association, which was recently or
ganized, will be held on Saturday evening
at the Olympic Club. Delegates from the
different clubs that had representatives
at the last meeting are expected to be on
hand, as a permanent organization will be
perfected. The new organization will be
known as the California Inanimate Target
Association, and the scheme is to have it
include all the organized gun clubs of the
State if possible. It is the intention to
hold an initial tournament in September,
at which valuable prizes will be offered for
team and individual competition. .

The first cremation of a human \ body in
San Francisco took place last evening in
the new crematory of the Odd Fellows'
Cemetery. A great deal of interest was
taken in this event by, people who regard
incineration of human remains after
death with favor, as the reduction to ashes
was in the nature of a test, although the
furnace and its hot chambers had been
tried with success on some of the lower
At the request of Dr. Davidson the re
mains of J. fi. Sichel, who died recently,
were cremated. The doctor was present
and watched the process of cremation, and
with him were Engineer Heinemann of the
Fulton Iron Works, under whose super
vision the furnaces were built, and George
R. Fletcher, superintendent of the ceme
tery; Architect Cahill, who built the cre
matory, and Frank Gibson, president of
the Alameda County crematory.
The body of Mr. Sichel was moved into
the hot-air chamber at 4:45 p. m. It lay in
a metallic casket, from which the mount
ings had been taken, and presently both

Owing to the fact that death had taken place
some weeks before and the remains were
decomposed they could not be removed
from, the coffin.. Subsequently the ashes
were a mixture of black and white, the

the metal. '-" No smoke issued from the
chimney. Six hundred pounds of coke
were . used and a temperature of 200 de

ashes lay upon the glowing Dresden tiles.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 1895.
FOR THE CHALLENGE CUP
Preparing for the Great Coast
Yachting Regatta on
ENCINALS IN FIRST PLACE.
The Prize to Be Sent Across the
Bay— A Big Midsummer Inter
Considerable interest now prevails in
yachting circles regarding the coast re
gatta for the San Francisco challenge cup.
The scheme was first mentioned in the
Call in the early part of the season when
the design of the cup was decided upon.
The idea of the race originated with Will
Brooks, the well-known yachtsman, and it
met immediately with the hearty indorse
ment of every amateur sailor on the bay.
The proposition is that the cup shall be
held as a perpetual challenge cup and be
raced for once a year.
In order to start the racing it was ne
cessary to make some club- the trustee of
the prize, and a few days ago it was de
cided to award to the Encinals of Alameda
this distinction. The cup will be delivered
into the hands of Commodore Leonard in
the early part of next week at the Mer
chants' Exchange, or some other public

place. As soon as it is accepted the Enci-
I nal Club is open to challenges from any
I and every organized yacht club, having
i three or more vessels, from San Diego to
Victoria. Only one boat can be entered by
j each club, and the name must accompany
the challenge of the club. One of the con
ditions is that the yacht named must not
I exceed by 1© per cent the sailing length of
! the largest craft in the challenged club.
I On the other hand the club which accepts
the challenge must not name a yacht
which exceeds 10 per cent more than the
sailing length of the challenging boat.
The interest manifested in the regatta
can be understood when it is remembered
that there are five big yacht clubs in the
bay and one each in San Diego, San Pedro,
Seattle, Portland and Victoria, all of which
j are entitled to challenge the holder of the
In future the regatta must be sailed on
some date between May 1 and September
30. According to the rules regulating the
race the latter must take place not less
than 3C days or more than 60 days after
the holder of the cup has been challenged.
The regatta will be sailed under the Sea
wanhaka rules and under the auspices of
a regatta committee composed of three
members of the challenged club's regatta
committee and three from that of the first
If a challenge be received from a port
foreign to the club holding the cup, the
committee has power to extend the time
60 days, and ten days after that if a good
reason can be offered. The regatta com
mittee shall select an outsider for referee,
whose decision shall be final.
An attempt is on foot to establish a'
yearly midsummer inter-club regatta, the
event to be held some time in July. With
this end in view the following circular has
been issued to all the clubs:
San Francisco, June 14, 1895.
Commodore— Dear Sir: The undersigned de
l sires your co-operation in the following, to
j wit: That the five yacht clubs located in this
i vicinity unite in giving a midsummer inter
club regatta in July of each year, the date to
be fixed by a committee to be composed of one
representative from the repatta committee of
each club participating. This committee to
have full charge of all matters connected with
the afi'air, acting as the regatta committee and
authorized to select a referee, to whom all
matters in dispute relative to the race should
be referred, his decision to be final. By co
operating as above suggested each club could
afford to subscribe at least fifty (SSO) dollars
• to the fund to cover prizes, printing, regatta,
The C. Y. C. has on its programme an open re
gatta for July 21. With the consent of its di
rectors it is proposed to drop this event, pro
vided the regatta, as outlined, should be given.
If the foregoing should meet with your ap
proval will you kindly so inform me at an
early date, iv order that a, communication
may be sent to each club advising that the
event is assured and that the representative
should be appointed with power to act.
No signature is attached to the circular,
as the latter was put out as a feeler. Three
clubs have already signified their inten
tion of joinine the enterprise, and there is
but little doubt that everybody will be in
before the regatta is held. The race will
be open to all classes of boats, large and
small, and if the scheme proves a success
one of the most remarkable aquatic sights
ever witnessed on the bay will be pre
sented. From forty to sixty yachts can be
gathered together from both sides of the
ay, and with that fleet under sail the ef
fect from sea or shore may be imagined.
CAPTURE OF A MAN-EATER.
Al Camming Land* a Monster Shark
"While Fishing for Salmon.
Al Cumming returned from Santa Cruz
yesterday and he is more than delighted
with the sport he has had catching salmon
in that bay. His greatest catch was a shark
that weighed 176 pounds. Mr. Cumming
says that shark-fishing as a sport is far in
advance of salmon-fishing. He hooked
the tiger of the deep when angling for
salmon, and it took him exactly
one hour and ; twenty-three minutes
to land his prize. The shark made a most
stubborn resistance and frequently ran out
170 yards of line, but ; to the careful band
ling of the experienced angler the mon
ster succumbed and was gaffed and landed
in the s most approved -style. Cumming
used a bamboo bass .. rod of about
eight feet '--:.' in 7"; length, and the
reel of the latest design which held 600
feet of strong • linen line. It was well
tested on this occasion and proved to be
the kind exactly . answerable . for
deep-sea fishing. Upon inspection it was
found that the shark had several fish from
six to • twelve inches ■ in ; length in his
stomach. - Cumming >.. says " that ' for sport
the capture of a shark is more interesting
and exciting sport than any other kind of
fishing. He will tackle the game again in
a few days.

morning and without once referring to the
respective merits of the Marion Wells and

LAW FAVORS THE TAILORS
Victims of Suit Clubs Come
to Grief in the Justices'
The Organizers Wore Permitted to
Keep Money for Which No
Value Was Given.
Justice of the Peace J. E. Barry yester
day decided a case of consiaerable interest
to tailors who have been engaged in run
ning suit clubs, and to persons who have
paid money to them, taking chances on
the scheme. •
M. E. Stanford had paid $11 into a suit
club in eleven weekly installments, and
G. E. Lawrence ' paid in like manner $23
into a club conducted by Hugh Forgie,
when the operations of the clubs were
stopped, being declared illegal by the
United States Government. The tailors
engaged in the business refused to return
the money to their patrons, who had re
ceived no consideration, and Stanford and
Lawrence assigned their claims against
Forgie to J. J. Raver for collection, and
the judgment rendered yesterday was that
of a test case upon which thousands of
dollars which has been paid into these
The case was tried some weeks ago and
has been under advisement since then.
Raver, represented by his attorney,
Perry, claimed that the patrons who had
paid their money in good faith were en
titled to recover it from the tailor who had
accepted it but who refused to give, any
Wickliffe Matthews appeared as attorney
for the tailors, and took the position that
the running of a suit club was a lottery,
ana that the same was illegal, and that
money paid into a lottery scheme could
not re recovered.
Justice Barry in his opinion coincided
with this view of tne case and decided that
the patrons of a suit club were not in any
case entitled to recover their money for
the reason that they were patronizing a
. A large number of suit club members
have been anxiously watching the case,
many having been in attendance at the
trial, with a view of beginning proceedings
for recovery immediately if the judgment
had been in their favor. .r. . 7
As it is, however, thai tailors seem to
have the best of it as far as it has gone,
and the victims of the insinuating but
defunct suit club will have to accept the
situation or find some other mode of
procedure. __ ■
SUED THE SUPERVISORS
One Firm of Contractors Is
Seeking to Hold Them
Justice Groezlnger Decides That
They Have Only to Follow
the Law as Laid Down.
One string of the infinite tangle which
bad financiering has brought upon the
City's affairs got into the Justice's court
Malloy <fe Broeder, one firm of con
tractors, sought to recover $200 at the
hands of Justice of the Peace Groezinger
for goods which they had delivered to the
Almshouse for the sustenance of the old
With the knowledge that a long train of
very astute business men who had sold
things to the City and because of certain
clauses in the constitution bad been pre
vented.from recovering the money Frank
Dillon, counsel for the contractors, took
a new tack. He brought the suit against
the individual members of the Board of
Now anybody might see at a glance how
very interesting the oflice of Supervisor
with a salary of $100 a month would be,
once it became known that the man hold
ing it became personally liable : for the
debts of the City, or even for those debts
growing out of supplies furnished its in
stitutions at their order, seeing that there
are in the hands of these other business
men claims to the amount of several hun
dred thousand dollars.
City and County Attorney Creswell filed
a demurrer to the complaint, declaring
that the Supervisors were not liable for
the debts of ; the City, and the argument
took place yesterday afternoon, and Judge
Groezinger sustained the demurrer, not to
the tremendous relief of the members of
the board, for they were not worried about
the matter at all. 'jmmfflEf&m'z.
Judge Groezinger held that the law made
the duties of the Supervisors clear. They
were reonired to let contracts, and to pro
vide for the sustenance of the several in
stitutions from the public funds, and that
so long as they did not go beyond the
limits of these provisions of the law govern
ing their conduct, they could not be held

Fought to a Draw.
WHEELING, W. Va., June 25.— Johnny
Van Heest of Milwaukee and Jerry Mar
shall of Australia fought thirty-one rounds
to a draw at the Metropolitan Athletic
Club house at Fulton, near this city, to
night. The honorß were about even up to
the twenty-fourth round, when both men
weakened, and the contest ■ was very tame
from that to the end. The contest was for
$500 a side and a purse.

SURPRISES ARE PROMISED
America's New Cup Defender
All Ready for the
TO BE LAUNCHED SATURDAY.
The Magnificent Yacht Has a Tre- i
mendous Spread of Sail and Is
I Surely a Winner.
-BRISTOL, R. 1., June 25.— Saturday of
this week is the day scheduled -for the
launch of the new America cup-racer —
Defender. " The self-imposed task of keep
ing secret, the lines and method of con
struction of the Defender has been most
successfully accompiished!"by the Herre
shoffs, and many surprises are promised
for yachtsmen when the hope of the Na
tion is cut free for the inspection of the
people. The little fan-like structure with
the slanting roof in the south end of the
Herreshoffs" yards.where the Defender has
been fashioned and finished and where she
now awaits only the hammer stroke to take
her first plunge into her natural element,
has been almost sacred ground, and none
but the seventy or eighty ship-carpenters,
joiners, metal-workers, sailmakers and
others employed upon the vessel have been
Money and brains are represented in the
new yacht to a greater extent than any
other vessel of her size, class and make
afloat. It is expected that she will prove
a marvel. She is without doubt the most
perfect and costliest sloop yacht ever built.
She . is original in every part. Her lead
keel is unlike any other yet run. It is easy
of curvature, has just enough round to it
for a good sidewise grip and is sure to hold
her well up to the wind. The length of
the Defender is 124 feet over all. She has
24-foot beam and draws 18 feet of water.
. Her lines show very easy curves and a
beautiful round section at the bilge. She
is narrower than Lord Dunraven's Val
kyrie 11, and although she draws more
water than does the Vigilant, she has the
same wetting surface. She has 72 steel
frames placed 2U"t_ inches apart and is
provided with aluminum bronze plates.
The saving of weight by the use of these
metal plates is something like seven tons.
He spars and blocks are made of Oregon
pine, and are the strongest, lightest and
most costly ever bent on any yacht. Her
mainmast is 102 feet long, with a circum
ference of 35 inches at the heel. The boom
is 102 feet, with 10"_ inches diameter at the
jaws ; gaff 64 feet, bowsprit 41 feet, spin
naker pole 42 feet, topmast 57 feet, and her
club topmast pole 51 feet. Her spread of
canvas is 19.000 feet, or 1000 more than
that of the Valkyrie. Her mainsail meas
ures 6500 feet, her topsail 1325 feet, the two
jibs 2300 feet, club topsail 1848 feet and her
spinnaker 7128 feet, making her the heav
iest-sparred single-sticker that ever touched
the water. The aisplacement of the De
fender is small, hardly up to 140 tons.
Her sails do not differ materially, however,
from the ordinary duck ones except that
the cloth runs from leach to luff instead of
up and down. t&fetSMSIIj
, The greatest claim to consideration,
however, that the Defender shows is in her
saving of weight. This, to the initiated,
is sufficient -in itself, so it is claimed, to
pull out a winner by many minutes over a
boat of equally good, or even better design.
All the halyards, it is understood, are led
below through tubes in the deck, and
worked by powerful winches, assuring a
much easier and more expeditions trim
ming of sheets than by the old hand and
deck method. The channel on which the
mud-diggers have been at work for some
weeks is now deep enough to warrant the
launch being made, and would float a boat
drawing even more water than the Defend
er. The spars have been stepped, the fine
American cotton sails fitted and the last
rivet headed. All that now remains is to
send her away, fit her out in a manner
befitting her berth, and then show the
.Britishers a clear and beautifully designed
and handsomely wrought stern in each and
every race for which she is entered.
